Cypress Lawn

White casket set, a life inside
Of days lived in minute detail,
Most forgotten, moments now gone,

As the casket lowers and is gone
Beneath dirt and flowers tossed inside
A shallow grave. Headstone, in detail,

Highlights years lived, little detail
Of all those moments now gone,
Days filled with light, darkness inside.

Detail gone with body inside.
